Roger Federer speaks about his clash against Andy Murray Federer speaks about his clash against Andy Murray

ROGER FEDERER will take on Andy Murray in Glasgow this week – and the 19-time Grand Slam champion has made a surprising revelation ahead of the clash.

The pair will play in front an 11,000-strong crowd in the Andy Murray Live charity event on Tuesday.

And it’s the first time the Swiss legend, who is gearing up for the ATP World Tour finals, has ever been to Scotland.

Federer currently has 95 ATP Tour titles to his name and is chasing Jimmy Connor’s record of 109.

Ahead of the match, Roger Federer said: “Going to new places is something I always really enjoy, so I’m excited to be going to Scotland for the first time.”

It’s been three months since Murray hobbled out of Wimbledon with a hip injury and the Federer match is the first chance for him to play semi-competitive tennis again.

And it has only been a month since Murray began hitting balls again.

There’s no ranking points or prize money up for grabs – with charity the only winner.

But Federer is licking his lips and the chance to take on Murray before the end-of-season championships at the O2.

“We’re going to have a good time,” Federer said. “I think it’s wonderful what he [Andy Murray] is doing in his philanthropic efforts.

“When people came away from Zurich, so many told me how much fun Andy actually was, what a great sport he was, so I was so happy he did that.”

Murray went to Zurich to play Federer in April in the Match for Africa 3.

Federer added: “I can’t wait to return the favour.”

The ATP World Tour Finals get underway at the 02 Arena on November 12.
